it was ok

Paraphrasing this book makes it sound exciting, what with crazy Bertha in the attic and Jane's cousin wanting to marry her, but I was utterly bored by this book. The lengthy environmental descriptions and incessant whinging about how her life was so hard made me want to light the book on fire.

Jane made so many stupid mistakes that had me headdesking, and there were so many plotpoints that I saw coming a mile away. It might have been a fantastic book in its day, but it just didnt appeal to me at all. And what the fuck was up when it started talking about Norway at the start?
